That wasn't the standard equipment final ratio? 3.06 was optional on the SE'* (H4U) I believe.

If you wanna believe you're RWD, you're more than welcome to. I should say FINAL drive ratio, but it doesn't really matter. It'* commonly done because that'* what people understand.

All supercharged engines mated to the 4T65E(HD) are 2.93 ratio. L67'* from 91-96 are mated to the 4T60E(HD) with a 2.97 ratio.

Its from a car for sale on e-bay. I figured it was a miss-print, but if you say GM does it like that on purpose for more people to understand it...
I would think that anyone who understands drive ratio in the first place would also know the difference between where the gearing is.

It'* calleddc "common terminology". Which is usally aimed at the lowest common denominator (aka dummest guy out there)

GM doesn't print those stickers, the dealer or soomeone he hires does. I used to have to service the printer of the guy here that did all the new car dealers here.
Maybe thats changed over the years.

Just a correction, the '96 has a freak transmission. 4T60E-HD with 2.93 ratio. Go figure.
